  BURLINGTON, VT, Feb 01 (Marketwire) -- 
Seventh Generation was recently named as one of the 2013 Best Places to
Work in Vermont. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Vermont
was created by Vermont Business Magazine, the Vermont Chamber of
Commerce, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, the Vermont
Department of Labor, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) -
Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group.

    This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify,
recognize and honor the best places of employment in Vermont, benefiting
the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2013 Best Places
to Work in Vermont list is made up of 21 companies. 

    "There's no better place for the nation's leading green brand to be based
than the Green Mountain State," said John Replogle, CEO of Seventh
Generation. "We were born in Vermont 25 years ago and have been inspired
by so many other great leaders and purpose-based companies here in the
state. This is a great way to celebrate our twenty-fifth anniversary as
we look forward to growing, learning and improving over the next
twenty-five right here in Vermont."

    Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to
determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. The first part consisted of
evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices,
philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth
approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of
an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the
process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined
scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies
Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Vermont and
also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final
rankings.
